              Using Intergroup Contact to Fight Prejudice and Negative Attitudes: Psychological Perspectives (Paperback)

              In this groundbreaking volume, Vezzali and Stathi present their research program within the larger contact literature, examining classic theories and current empirical findings, to show how they can be used to reduce prejudice and negative attitudes. The contact hypothesis (Allpo...rt, 1954) posits that in an environment of equality, cooperation and normative support, contact between members of distinct groups can reduce prejudice. Whilst considerable research supports this hypothesis, how theory can be tested in the field remains relatively unexplored. In this innovative book, Vezzali and Stathi discuss why relying solely on advancing theory without considering applied aspects integral to contact may limit the scope of contact theory and restrict our understanding of complex social phenomena. Exploring fascinating topics such as the role of contact in reducing implicit prejudice and fostering collective action, applying indirect contact and promoting positive interactions among survivors of natural disasters, Vezzali and Stathi explain how contact theory can be implemented and enhance the societal impact of intergroup contact research. Featuring extensive discussion on intergroup contact literature, future directions, and the necessity of applied research, this book will be essential reading for both students and academics of social and behavioural psychology.

              SAS for Elementary Statistics: Getting Started provides an introduction to SAS programming for those who have experience with introductory statistical methods. It is also an excellent programming supplement for an introductory statistics course. It is appropriate for the beginnin...g programmer with no prior SAS experience and the researcher who would like to refresh SAS programming skills. These lessons are those the author has found successful in the classroom. Strengths of this book include the following: Examples are easy to follow and understand. Chapters have user-friendly text and objectives. Each chapter has clear objectives with SAS syntax and output results given. Objectives are stated as tasks with detailed step-by-step instructions. Programming notes based on the author's experience occur throughout the book. The author assists the reader in making sense of the error messages in the SAS log. Brief reviews of statistical methods are included in chapters accompanying the corresponding SAS procedures. Easy transition from user terminology to SAS terminology is provided. The ability to select or suppress results using Output Delivery System (ODS) is made simple. Reading and writing to external files are among the most used SAS skills, and these concepts are clearly presented. The IMPORT and EXPORT procedures and ODS are used to accomplish these tasks. Statistical Graphics procedures and SAS/GRAPH can be quite challenging to learn, but these are presented in a very achievable format. Basic graph construction is first introduced then readers learn how to add color, pattern, and other enhancements to graphics images.

              Lorentz Geometry is a very important intersection between Mathematics and Physics, being the mathematical language of General Relativity. Learning this type of geometry is the first step in properly understanding questions regarding the structure of the universe, such as: What is... the shape of the universe? What is a spacetime? What is the relation between gravity and curvature? Why exactly is time treated in a different manner than other spatial dimensions? Introduction to Lorentz Geometry: Curves and Surfaces intends to provide the reader with the minimum mathematical background needed to pursue these very interesting questions, by presenting the classical theory of curves and surfaces in both Euclidean and Lorentzian ambient spaces simultaneously. Features Over 300 exercises Suitable for senior undergraduates and graduates studying Mathematics and Physics Written in an accessible style without loss of precision or mathematical rigour Solution manual available on www.routledge.com/9780367468644

              This book discusses an important area of numerical optimization, interior-point method, which has been very active since 1980s when people realized that all popular simplex algorithms were not convergent in polynomial time and many interior-point algorithms could be proved to con...verge in polynomial time. However, for a long time, there was a noticeable gap between theoretical polynomial bounds of the interior-point algorithms and efficiency of these algorithms. Namely, strategies, which were known to be important to the computational efficiency, became barriers in the proof of good polynomial bounds. The more strategies were used in an algorithm, the worse the polynomial bounds were obtained. To further exacerbate the problem, Mehrotra's predictor-corrector (MPC) algorithm (the most popular and efficient interior-point algorithm until recently) uses all good strategies and fails to prove the convergence. Therefore, MPC does not have polynomiality, a critical issue with the simplex method. This book discusses recent development that resolves the dilemma. It has three major parts. The first part, including Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4, presents some most important algorithms during the development of the interior-point method around 1990s, most of them are widely known. The main purpose of this part is to explain the dilemma described above by analyzing these algorithms' polynomial bounds and summarizing the computational experience associated with these algorithms. The second part, including Chapters 5, 6, 7, and 8, describes how to solve the dilemma step by step using arc-search techniques. At the end of this part, a very efficient algorithm with the lowest polynomial bound is presented. The last part, including Chapters 9, 10, 11, and 12, extends arc-search techniques to some more general problems, such as convex quadratic programming, linear complementarity problem, and semi-definite programming.

              With recent advances in computing power and the widespread availability of preference, perception and choice data, such as public opinion surveys and legislative voting, the empirical estimation of spatial models using scaling and ideal point estimation methods has never been mor...e accessible. The second edition of Analyzing Spatial Models of Choice and Judgment demonstrates how to estimate and interpret spatial models with a variety of methods using the open-source programming language R. Requiring only basic knowledge of R, the book enables social science researchers to apply the methods to their own data. Also suitable for experienced methodologists, it presents the latest methods for modeling the distances between points. The authors explain the basic theory behind empirical spatial models, then illustrate the estimation technique behind implementing each method, exploring the advantages and limitations while providing visualizations to understand the results. This second edition updates and expands the methods and software discussed in the first edition, including new coverage of methods for ordinal data and anchoring vignettes in surveys, as well as an entire chapter dedicated to Bayesian methods. The second edition is made easier to use by the inclusion of an R package, which provides all data and functions used in the book. David A. Armstrong II is Canada Research Chair in Political Methodology and Associate Professor of Political Science at Western University. His research interests include measurement, Democracy and state repressive action. Ryan Bakker is Reader in Comparative Politics at the University of Essex. His research interests include applied Bayesian modeling, measurement, Western European politics, and EU politics. Royce Carroll is Professor in Comparative Politics at the University of Essex.
